fleamailman______no hint, just wondering, im being curious, because i didnt think this would be a rare case. I tried system restore but for some reason it wont let me, i tried many different "earlier dates but it said restore point could not be completed.how can i try to check if its xp?



Kurenai_______i tried defraging which by the way i do every week, just about, but double checked and it went fine, In the past i have had messages stating "some files could not be fragmented" but not lately after i cleaned it up, I do have 6 viruses in my backup quarintine folder for norton. They must be recent. Could that be the problem? I have updated my display driver lately, Also i turned down an update for ie7 as it seemed like an odd and big update, but saw somewhere it was givin problems so i didnt do it. cant think of anything else?

cant i let it sleep then when it turns on, immediately hit ctrl-alt.-delete, and see whats running at that very moment? I dunno just a noob idea? hhmm in my add remove programs, i found logitech desktop messenger, whats that? Maybe it was an option with my mouse, but dont think i need it with mouseware just under it for my current mouse. Seems like garbage?

Worth a try. If you're not using it for anything, might as well uninstall it. I'm going to bow out of this one, as it has reached the point at which I would reinstall, or start ripping out programs.

well after an exhausting day with hp support ii found the problem and is common for xp, so they say and have had lots of complaints. Anyway
---click Start and then right-click My Computer.
---Windows XP, select Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button
---Click the plus sign next to Network Adapters, and then double-click the name of the network adapter.
---and now for the culprit. lol. Click the Power Management tab, and remove the checkmark from Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby.
---Click OK, close the windows that are open, and then restart the computer

thanks guys for all your help.
